Server Rules (PvP, PvE & PvPvE)

Post#1 » Tue Nov 14, 2017 5:45 pm

Rules Covering ALL PlayARK Servers
Please make sure you read and fully understand the rules before playing as ignorance is not an excuse.

No cheating: This includes hacks, map glitches or bots (macros are okay).

Accounts: Only one forum/game account per user. No offensive names. Players cannot "impersonate" other tribes or players, if there is confusion its up to the player to publicly correct the problem in game chat.

Tribe Names:
  • You shall not change your tribe name more than once within a 30day period, if you require the name to be changed you are required to get approval from the admin, due to raiders changing their names while raiding to hide who was causing it, any unauthorised changes will result in a permaban!
  • Your tribe name cannot be offensive, contain advertising or include swear/vulgar words, this is a game (with kids who play) and those who dont take it seriously should go elsewhere,
    if you are unsure on the classification of your tribe name, contact DrunkMunki.

Player Names:
  • Your player name cannot be something with derogatory terms, swear words ... this indicates you dont take this game seriously and are just here to troll ... if the admin feels the name is offensive it will be changed.
  • Players shall not advertise using their player name or tribe name; this includes YouTube or Twitch addresses (your welcome to advertise it on the forum, just don’t spam it).

Tribe Limits:
  • You must not use alliances to skirt the Tribe max...
    e.g build your bases all together in 1 big compound, and must act independently, e.g 1 tribe leader telling the other tribe what to do..

Volcano/Mountain: (TheIsland Map)
  • Volcano at 42 (lat) / 39 (long) crater is off-limits for building.
  • PVP is not permitted inside the crater.
  • You can build anything on the sides.
  • Dinos cannot be left alone at the volcano crater for no longer than an hour, if you need to use a lot of dinos use the Transporter.

Obelisk/Caves/Terminals:
  • Building on obelisks or their respective craters is not allowed.
  • Building in caves (land or underwater) are permitted so long as they do not prevent access to any unique resources such as artifacts or drops (caves without unique resources can be used).
  • No building around Terminals (Extinction) or structures (walls..turrets) to prevent players from accessing terminals

General:
  • Placing foundations/pillars to claim land or to block mass amount of resource spawns is also disallowed and may result in your structure being removed or entire tribe’s structures wiped (if excessive).
  • Structures that are abandoned or made demolish-able will be auto-demolished by the server.

Pub Rules:
  • Pub is a PvP/Raid free zone designated as a safe place for trade and socialising, this means no Hitting/Punching/Shooting players
  • Dinos are not to be left unattended
  • Return BP’s once you have finished crafting with them
  • No damage to any pub structure, accidental damage will result in that tribe paying for damages.
  • Everything at the pub is free to anyone, don’t be greedy

Blackmail: If a player violates the rules against you or your tribe and it isn’t reported the moment you find out, or you choose to delay the report, you accept your report may be voided due to time factors; e.g if you are raided or your dinos are killed, you negotiate with the offenders (e.g a replacement dino) and for some reason they pissed you off and you report it, this will void the report as you accepted compensation.

Personal Information: Do NOT post or direct users to private information about other players, this information and peoples personal lives should not be involved in a video game, anyone found posting such information will be permanently banned from all servers.

Advertising: Players shall not advertise other servers, YouTube or Twitch addresses in game, if you need to share a TS that is fine as long as its related to general chat requests... advertising will result in an immediate ban.

Final Word: DrunkMunki has final say in all matters, even if not covered under the rules if he finds actions of players are detrimental to the community, action taken outside the rules may be taken to prevent disruption.

Remember, this is a SURVIVAL GAME, shit will happen, things will be said ... at the end of the day its just a game.

PvP Server Rules

PvP:
  • PvP is 24/7 on this server
  • You can kill any level sleeping player.
  • If a player is being hostile with a dino towards you, you have every right to defend yourself and kill that player and dino.

Excessive Damage:
Definition: If a large portion of you base structure has been damaged; this varies from type of material (thatch, stone, metal) as stone bases will have more splash damage than metal, this definition will refer to metal bases as wood/stone bases require minimal effort to gain entry..
  • Excessive damage is based on your base design, don’t build everything so compact people need to destroy your whole base to get into something, excessive damage won’t be applicable if your base is small, very cramped and contained.
  • Excessive damage may be considered if 50% or more of the base structure is destroyed (if raiding screenshots may be required).
  • Excessive damage is for building structures only, does not include S+ tools such as smithy's, forges, storage (which auto lock).... recommended you keep them away from your main base as they can be destroyed.
  • Boats and Tree Platforms have no protection under excessive damage and can be destroyed.

Harassment/Griefing Rules:
  • You must not repeatedly target a single player when they respawn, e.g camping at their front door and killing them repeatedly as soon as they come out or exit the boundaries of their base.
  • Griefing is considered repeatedly harassing/killing someone over a 3 hour period and preventing them from playing.
  • REMINDER: if you die while being griefed, respawn elsewhere and play!

High Rate Server: Passive dinos may be killed, up to the tribe to secure and protect them.
Low Rate Server: Make sure the dinos are set to passive for the passive dino mod to protect them.

PvE Cluster Server Rules
These Rules currently apply to the following servers:
[AU/NZ]playark.com.au-PvE-TheIsland/NoWipe/Mods/Admin
[AU/NZ]playark.com.au-PvE-TheCentre/NoWipe/Mods/Admin
[AU/NZ]playark.com.au-PvE-Scorched Earth/NoWipe/Mods/Admin
[AU/NZ]playark.com.au-PvE-Ragnarok/NoWipe/Mods/Admin
[AU/NZ]playark.com.au-PvE-Aberration/NoWipe/Mods/Admin

Passive Dinos:
  • You may not pick up any other tribes dinos and place them in a position to be killed.
  • You may not drop wild dinos into a tribe’s base.
  • You may tranq/knock out dinos to loot/raid, but must NOT kill them (this also means putting the unconscious dino in a position where wild animals can kill it)

Claimable Dinos:
  • Do NOT encase near claimable dinos in structures to try and prevent others from claiming them, all dinos near or claimable must not be encased in structures preventing other players from getting them.

Hostages:
Definition: someone who is restricted on leaving area (Cage, weight...)
  • Hostages are not to be tranq'd more than 50% (max 1hr) of the time.
  • A hostage is to be only taken for up-to 2 hours, then must be released once the 2 hours has expired.
  • You are not permitted to take the same player hostage for at-least 48 hours (but can be killed).
  • If the tribe who detained the prisoner all log off, they must release/kill the player.
  • Once you have a hostage, you are required to announce "_____ is now a hostage".. for example DrunkMunki is now a hostage..... this creates a public record of when the timer starts, failure to do this can result in a player choosing any of your dinos as compensation if the timer goes beyond 2hrs (proof required by prisoner).
  • Handcuffs have been removed from the game.
  • Players below level 20 cannot be caged.

General:
  • Due to structure protection; you must clean up after yourself, e.g removing spikes and taming pens no longer in use, this prevents others from using the land as they cannot remove the items themselves.
